This is one of the more degrading things I have seen a politician subjected to. Here is Mike Pence explaining that he endorses Paul Ryan, and he has to say that he went out and got Trump’s permission to do it, because that makes Trump sound better and magnanimous (I guess?). Ridiculous.

Again, I am sure Pence is trying to make Trump look better or do what he thinks is necessary to quell the ongoing firestorm over Trump’s refusal to endorse Ryan, but he sure makes himself look like a servile dog in the process. Not a good look on him.
